Parsing Genesis

This project looks at Genesis, and maps the emotions mentioned in the text with color associated with those emotions.

Expressing Information

There is a deep connection between color and emotion. It is truly universal.

I wondered how much emotion there is Genesis, and how we could visualize that with color as the lens in which it becomes revealed.

I did extensive research into the psychology of colors and emotions, and it confirmed what I had been thinking. I even found that this connection, and the connection to specific colors went beyond our culture- for example red is perceived the same way in Russia as it is here.


The primary implementation are the prints, but there is also the url, made in php which is what informed the prints.

That the color - emotion connection is universal. That there is a lot of fear in the Genesis.
